Mollydooker Shiraz Blend Mclaren Vale Two Left Feet 2006

Member Review by run34515:

Color: deep purple, big color. Nose: same bouquet as vodka and unsweetened, fresh-squeezed blueberry juice. Flavor Profile: Starts out silky-smooth and "velvety." Over-the-top fruit; explosions of blueberry jelly, blackberry reduction sauce, over-ripe strawberries and cherries, really "jammy." Surprisingly well-balanced wine (given the 16% alcohol content). The strong fruit flavors and acid tame the alcohol. A totally new-world wine... like cramming your mouth full of different flavors of berry preserves.

Incredibly fruity, heavy-duty taste. Often compared with the Boxer (the straight Shiraz from this winemaker), the Two Left Feet tastes better fresh out of the bottle, but fails to develop quite as much given an hour or so to breathe. Inky-red, and very fruity, delicious flavor.

A little over the top, but very good when you're in the mood for that style. I often am, and liked it a lot. At $20, a decent QPR. A little heat on the finish, but it blows off after 30 min or so. A good wine to check out the "Mollydooker Shake", and I think it works!

Gigantic fruit bomb that leaves you hanging on the finish.

We were wowed with our first 2 left feet when it first came out and just opened one to go with a porterhouse steak and it was fantastic! Powerful, full of fruit and layered. This wine keeps getting better and we only have 2 bottles left. For the price, an extraordinary value

Wine Advocate ReviewRated 93The 2006 Shiraz (68%) Merlot (17%) Cabernet Sauvignon (15%) Two Left Feet is a glass-coating opaque purple color. The brooding nose reveals plummy dark fruits, blueberry, licorice, and a hint of chocolate. On the palate it is thick, layered, and voluptuous. The structure is well-concealed and the wine is seamless and very long. It will reward a few years of cellaring but delaying gratification will be difficult. It is a great value.Wine Tasting NotesA blend of Shiraz, Cab, Merlot, the 2005 vintage was selected by Robert Parker as the 2nd "Best Value Wine in the World under $20". The 2006 is even better as the vintage produced fruit which was absolutely awesome.The dancing couple on the label represent the influence of both a male and female palate in our winemaking.
